According to a study completed by Dusseldorf University Hospital in Germany, the three objects adults are most likely to accidentally SWALLOW are...
1) Fish Bones- They make up between 9% and 45% of all accidentally-swallowed objects. (--They clearly didn't get a real firm estimate.)
2) Chicken Bones- Are somewhere between 8% and 40% of all accidently-swallowed objects.
3) Dentures- Which can come loose while people are eating.. ( and completely BLOWS my mind).. are somewhere between 4% and 18% of accidentally-swallowed items.
LUCKILY, things that get swallowed by accident pass through the body without a problem 80% of the time. Only 1% of swallowed items require surgery.
--Surprisingly COINS weren't mentioned in the Survey.. but other Doctors have said that they would have been next on the list.
